  • Want A Free Pass To All TechCrunch Events For A Year? Fund A DonorsChoose Classroom Project

    The economy might be about to tank, but why should the children have to suffer? If you are going to give to charity this year (and you should, every one of you), we highly recommend giving to DonorsChoose. Each donation funds a classroom project or equipment for teachers who too often have to fund supplies out of their own meager paychecks. This year we are once again participating in… Read More

  • Kevin Mitnick detained after trip to Colombia

    Kevin Mitnick, the infamous hacker who basically gave script-kiddies the power to lord over dumb journalists and law enforcement folks, was detained after a trip to Bogota where he gave a talk to reporters from El Tiempo. When he landed in Atlanta, customs officials pulled him out of line and searched his bags where they found: Read More

  • SE C905 release date found

  • Rumor: "D500" to replace Nikon D300 in early 2009

    Not a lot of details on this one yet, but it makes some sense. Succeeding the D300 at around the $2000 level, the rumored D500 should sport 15.1 megapixels, weather sealing, video mode (24fps and manual controls, thank god), 1.5x FOV crop and of course live view. There’s no reason to believe this is true, really, except that it sounds about right. It’s a bit above my pay scale… Read More

  • Got An iPhone? Join The TechCrunch Loopt Mobile Social Network And Never Be Lonely Again

    Here at TechCrunch we’re big believers in mobile social networks. In February I wrote about how the iPhone is the perfect ecosystem to have it’s own social network (awesome device and software, location aware, elitist users). And in April I showed a teaser of an upcoming social network from Loopt that did everything I had asked for: iPhone only to start, location aware so that… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Pogo stylus half off (today only)

    Back in December of 2007, I brought you news of the Pogo stylus for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I remarked that the initial price of $25 sounded a bit expensive for an aluminum stick and that a stylus sort of defeats the purpose of the iPhone/iPod Touch. Some of you agreed with me and some of you made a good point that the Pogo would work well in the wintertime (assuming you don’t buy… Read More

  • You Are Gonna Vote, Right?

    There is a rampantly liberal underlying message to this video (“if you care about sick people getting health care, you have to vote”), but the message is a good one. If you want to complain about the government the least you can do is take the time to vote for whoever you dislike the least. So whether you’re a whiny liberal, a warmongering conservative or, like me, a… Read More

  • ‘Rock Band 2’ free DLC tracks registration now open

    If you’re like me, you opened Rock Band 2, rushed to the site to enter your registration code to get 20 free downloadable tracks, and were told to come back later. Well now is later. Being able to download 20 free tracks is still “coming soon,” but at least you can get your e-mail addresses registered and commence the process of waiting patiently. Rock Band 2… Read More

  • Rumors help drive down prices of Nikon DSLRs

    Endless and incessant rumors regarding Nikon’s next move make the world go ’round; they also help lower the price of the company’s existing line of cameras. For example, you can now grab a D40X with an 18-135mm lens for around $819. Times being what they are and all, that’s still a fair amount of money, but it’s a lot cheaper than the $1,000 you once would… Read More

The only new non-smartphone making an appearance is the 5 megapixel Sony Ericsson C902, which actually managed to sneak in sans fanfare over the weekend. On the… Read More
